Acute clearance studies were performed in normal subjects to establish the site(s) and mechanism of action of the new diuretic agent, bumetanide (3-n-butylamino-4-phenoxy-5-sulfamylbenzoic acid), in the human kidney. When the drug was administered during water diuresis, solute-free water formation was unchanged associated with a peak increment in fractional(More)
Oxygen free radicals produced by neutrophils are important in the pathogenesis of mucosal damage in ulcerative colitis. Vitamin A, vitamin E and cysteine in the plasma can scavenge free radicals. In the present study, plasma levels of vitamin A, vitamin E, cysteine, cystine and protein-bound cysteine were measured in active ulcerative colitis before and(More)
Renal failure due to combined acute interstitial nephritis and minimal-change glomerulopathy is reported in two patients after fenoprofen therapy. In the interstitial infiltrates, T lymphocytes predominated over B lymphocytes in a ratio of four to one. The majority of B lymphocytes present were IgE-bearing cells. Among the T cells, the ratio of(More)
Three patients with a 2-3 year history of parenteral abuse of pentazocine hydrochloride (Talwin) developed membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type I. Clinical presentation included nephrotic syndrome, microscopic hematuria, and hypertension. Tissue studies disclosed 1+ to 4+ mesangial and subendothelial deposits of immunoglobulins (predominantly IgM)(More)
Significant differences in seizure characteristics between inbred mouse strains highlight the importance of genetic predisposition to epilepsy. Here, we examined the genetic differences between the seizure-resistant C57BL/6J (B6) mouse strain and the seizure-susceptible DBA/2J (D2) strain in the phospho-Erk and Fos pathways to examine seizure-induced(More)
